Smithers Art Gallery Additional Track Lighting


November 26, 2015

Final Report to the Bulkley Valley Community Foundation

The gallery applied for funds to purchase additional track lighting which is used to illuminate the artwork and to provide lighting for art classes and workshops. As the photo below illustrates, the additional lighting has enabled the Gallery to better highlight and do justice to the artwork and greatly enhances the working environment for children and adults attending art camps and workshops. 

We are always appreciative of the funds awarded to us by the BV Community Foundation and are pleased to acknowledge your support on our Facebook page and on our website.

Thank you for your suppport
